Wash produce before use


Prep and roast the turnip and fish

Heat the oven to 400°F. Prep and cook instructions are almost identical for all fish options.
  • Scrub or peel the turnip; cut the turnip lengthwise into quarters, then crosswise into ¼-inch-thick slices. On one end of a sheet pan [on 1 sheet pan], toss the turnip with 1 to 2 teaspoons oil; season with salt and pepper and spread in an even layer.
  • Pat the fish dry with a paper towel, and rub the fish all over with 1 to 2 teaspoons oil; season generously with salt and pepper. On the other end of the sheet pan [on a 2nd sheet pan], place the fish (skin side down for the skin-on salmon or snapper).
Roast, stirring the turnip once halfway through, until the turnip is just tender and the fish is opaque and flaky, 10 to 12 minutes for skin-on salmon or snapper and 11 to 13 minutes for skinless salmon.
While the turnip and fish cook, start preparing the salad.


Make the salad

  • Using your hands or a sharp knife, peel the orange; cut the orange in half lengthwise, then crosswise into ¼-inch-thick half-moons. Discard any seeds.
In a large bowl, combine the kale with the balsamic vinegar and 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] oil, season with salt and pepper, and gently massage the leaves. Add the orange and roasted turnip and toss to combine. Season to taste with salt and pepper.


Transfer the fish and salad to individual plates. Garnish the salad with the pumpkin seeds and serve.
